PERTH, AustraliaWoodside Energy has issued progress reports on various field developments offshore Western Australia.

Construction of the Greater Enfield project facilities was recently 95% complete. All subsea infrastructure has been installed, 10 of the 12 development wells have been drilled, and first oil should follow in the next few weeks.

The Ngujima-Yin FPSO, which underwent a comprehensive refit at Keppel Tuas Shipyard in Singapore, has returned to waters off the North West Cape.

Production from the existing Vincent field wells re-started earlier this month.

The Pluto PLA07 gas infill well spudded in May, and work on the Pluto water handling project is currently around the halfway point.

Woodside is targeting a final investment decision later this year for Julimar-Brunello Phase 2, which will develop gas from the Julimar reservoir as a subsea tieback to the existing Brunello infrastructure.

Front-end engineering design (FEED) has started for the Greater Western Flank Phase 3 project on the North West Shelf and should finish early next year.

Phase 3 (including Lambert Deep) will target recovery of 435 bcf of gas.

FEED should also get under way by year-end on the Browse Joint Venture’s Browse to NWS project.
